Florence Regina Paul of West Tisbury died peacefully at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital on Sept. 6, surrounded by family. She was 93.

She was born on Feb. 19, 1923 to John and Rose Suchecki. In May of 1947 she married veteran Benedict Paul in New Haven, Conn., where they raised their two daughters. Gifted with an attention to detail and precision with numbers, she worked as a bookkeeper at Bradford Ford and Connecticut White Truck.

Ben and Florence spent a brief time living in Ossining, N.Y., working as caretakers and maintaining a small sheep farm. In 1993 they moved to Martha’s Vineyard, where they became grandparents extraordinaire, always available to drive, cook for, and take care of not only their lucky grandchildren but visiting friends as well.

Fudgie, as she was known to friends and loved ones, was devoted to her family. She was selfless and thoughtful, and had boundless energy to help with anything that needed doing. Her family will miss her strength and caring.

She is survived by her sisters Josephine Kosack, Elizabeth Dwyer, Jeanne Danielson, and Leanore Lane; her daughters Diane Wall and Jan Paul; her son in law Richard Rooney, and her granddaughters Hilary and Tessa Wall and Janaye Rooney. She was predeceased by her husband of 63 years, Benedict Paul, and her siblings Henrietta Tracz, Helen Adams, Stacia Wolchecki, Stella Belcher, Rose Burness, Dorothy Smith, and John Suchecki.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 1 at St. Stanislaus Church in New Haven, Conn.

Arrangements are under the care of the Chapman, Cole and Gleason Funeral Home in Oak Bluffs. An online guest book is available at ccgfuneralhome.com.
